Harry Redknapp has warned that he will rotate his side to keep everyone fresh.
'The players know there is fierce competition for places. Everyone else changes their team around. Liverpool have done it for the past 90-odd games in a row."
'So players shouldn't get too upset if they don't play. I've got to keep the players fresh and swap it around. It's part of the game."
'And it's not as if I'm bringing mugs in to replace them. We've got a good squad. There are some decent players waiting for an opportunity to play. They're desperate to get into the team.'
Harry is likely to bring Fernandes back into the squad to face West Ham. He has kept a similar team throughout the matches this year, deciding against changing a winning team.
His new signings where also unfit but players such as Kranjcar, Fernandes, Douala and Cole are now recovering and ready for first team action.
